and public servants. >> right up there with defense. that is one of the big ideas of the obama presidency, right? essentially, reorienting how america deals with the world away from the u.s. military and toward u.s. diplomacy. to upscale our soft power capacity as a country so we have more options beyond just the option of force. this president did a lot to advance that idea simply by putting somebody as high profile as hillary clinton in the job of america's head diplomat. but the overall goal of upscaling state, upscaling diplomacy and development so they are right up there with defense, like she said today, that is widely regarded as a goal that is not yet realized. secretary clinton alluded to that fact today when she said she now plans to become an advocate for that cause from the outside. it is, frankly, easy to imagine that as the core for her return to public life and politics for hillary clinton at some point, but we shall see. the secretary also reflected today on how she is really leaving public life for the first time in a very long time. and she suggested that that might make

president obama from engaging in these activities. i don't know if they're right or not. the supreme court has never been asked that question. >> one of the main problems here is. is that, you know, when we talk about the legal justifications and legal memos and things like that, we are now in an era where even the government's interpretation of the law becomes something akin to a state secret. that we have to go through legal hurdles to get the government to articulate the legal theory by which they have the justification for doing things. that's a problem in a democracy. that is probably one of the deepest problems in a democracy. >> remember, there are no court cases out there to look at. the lawyers for president obama are speculating about what the law is. the executive branch is supposed to implement and enforce the law. the judicial branch is supposed to tell us what the constitution says. we have been unable to get the judicial branch through, though you're trying mightily to make that happen. so all we have is the president interpreting his own powers and the limits on his own pow
